Canons Ashby to Host Open-air Music and Theatre this Summer

Captivating theatre and musicians are coming from all over the country to perform in Canons Ashby, this summer. Experience a summer evening that we could only have dreamt of during the peak of the Pandemic.

In South Northamptonshire, Canons Ashby (between Banbury and Daventry) will be hosting Baroque Classics in the Garden, an open-air classical concert by renowned musicians Eboracum Baroque, on Saturday 18 June.

If you prefer theatre, The Pantaloons will be performing Much Ado About Nothing on Saturday 16th July, and Immersion Theatre will wow the family with Rapunzel, on 20th August.

About the National Trust

The National Trust is a conservation charity founded in 1895 by three people: Octavia Hill, Sir Robert Hunter and Hardwicke Rawnsley, who saw the importance of the nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. Today, across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, we continue to look after places so people and nature can thrive.

The challenges of the coronavirus pandemic have shown this is more important than ever. From finding fresh air and open skies to tracking a bee’s flight to a flower; from finding beauty in an exquisite painting or discovering the hidden history of a country house nearby – the places we care for enrich people’s lives.

Entirely independent of Government, the National Trust looks after more than 250,000 hectares of countryside, 780 miles of coastline and 500 historic properties, gardens and nature reserves.

The National Trust is for everyone – we were founded for the benefit of the whole nation. We receive on average more than 26.9 million visits each year to the places we care for that
have an entry fee, and an estimated 100m visits to the outdoor places that are free of charge. Paying visitors, together with our 5.6 million members and more than 53,000 volunteers, support our work to care for nature, beauty, history. For everyone, for ever.
